Evaluation of ways to improve the utility and communication of scientific research is itself a legitimate research objective that will significantly enhance the societal benefits of investments in science. An expanded focus on applied and adaptive scientific research is likely to result in increased interaction with policy-makers and water managers. 31 Copyright © National Academy of Sciences.

Html and adapted as more experience with the system yields more information (Walters and Holling, 1992). The importance of adaptive management cannot be overemphasized. Data on water are lacking in many regions of the world even as the need for water management intensifies. Moreover, projected levels of population growth suggest that water management will need to become more pervasive if sufficient quantities are to be available to meet the drinking water and sanitation demands and grow the additional food needed to support more people.
It is vital for every country to develop economic growth strategies based on knowledge and innovation. In order to successfully meet the challenges of globalization, African countries, in general, and Senegal, in particular, must place science and technology at the heart of their development policy. The scholar Cheikh Anta Diop recognized the crucial role of knowledge, science and, specifically, for technology in any development policy. ” As a developing country with a primarily agricultural economy, Senegal is confronted with limited human and material resources in scientific and technological fields, and therefore, has problems incorporating science and technology into its development policies.
